Usability guru Jakob Nielsen has turned his attention to a different issue altogether: information pollution. The article is mostly about the ever-present spam problem, and it contains a few suggestions for managing the terror. I agree with most all of them, except for his advice, “Don’t be event driven: resist e-mail alerts.” Yes, if you subscribe to too many alert programs your Inbox will get cluttered up — but will you spend less time going through your Inbox, or researching the issue on the Internet? I would much rather have the information brought to me.
